Functional Neural Transplantation III book cover

Functional Neural Transplantation III

Primary and Stem Cell Therapies for Brain Repair, Part I

This issue of Progress in Brain Research is split over 2 volumes, bringing together cutting-edge research on functional neural transplantation. The 2 volumes review current knowledge and understanding, provide a starting point for researchers and practitioners entering the field, and build a platform for further research and discovery.
